The Winning Days At Newcastle United Were Fun But More Than That I Miss Thinking ‘Maybe’

6 years ago

I would love to come on here and write a different article, one full of hope and fun, but sadly nothing at the club is hopeful or full of fun.

This quote below from [intlink id=”47707″ type=”post”]Alan Pardew that I’ve just read on this site[/intlink], for me sums up why he needs to leave.

Why has it become so big a gap?

We did it two seasons ago without really spending anything and have now spent £40million (roughly) this summer and he even claimed himself that this is a much better side than any of the ones previous.

“They (Newcastle fans) are realistic and know we are not a top six club, I think they know that. We aint got the resources to do that.

“But seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth, whatever, we have got to challenge those positions and we’re not good enough to do that at the moment.”

I understand all new players need time to gel but why not say something positive? Why is it no longer possible?

For months now I haven’t heard anything positive come out of Pardew’s mouth. You can say what you want about the amount players get paid, or however you want to butter it up, but it will affect the players.

On top of that you get this verbal nonsense, why would you want to play for this manager?

Why would you want to play for a club that doesn’t want Europe, doesn’t want to play in the Cups and is happy with almost living in purgatory as long as the bums continue to sit on the seats?

I miss the days of trying, yeah the winning days were fun, but more than that, I miss being entertained or thinking ‘maybe’.

Newcastle showed glimpses on Saturday of what they are capable of, Cisse scoring two goals, but I don’t think that had anything to do with Pardew.

It had everything to do with Jonas and his mates wanting to put a performance in for him.

When you get situations like that, it doesn’t half make you think that the players don’t want to play for Pardew anymore, therefore its time for a change.
